Virgo and Sagittarius are the preverbal odd couple match. One is an introvert and the other an extrovert. One has their eyes on the here and now, while the other has theirs on the future. However, this is an either/or relationship that can be surprisingly strong.

Very Different Lifestyles

In a Virgo/Sagittarian relationship, there is a constant struggle for lifestyle dominance. At any moment either can be trying to foist their lifestyle on the other. It's not as if they're opposites; they have a squared off dynamic that can make both a bit crazy until they realize there's a time and a place for everything.

  • Virgo thrives on routine and stability; Sagittarius thrives on risk and excitement.
  • Virgo is practical; Sagittarius is theoretical.
  • Virgo is focused; Sagittarius is absentminded.
  • Virgo is organized; Sagittarius is careless.
  • Virgo is tightly wound; Sagittarius hangs loose.
  • Virgo plans; Sagittarius flies by the set of its pants.
  • Virgo pays attention to details; Sagittarius is a big-picture person.
  • Virgo worries about everything; Sagittarius worries about almost nothing.

One way of living is not more correct than the other. Each might be able to modify their style a bit, but won't be able to change completely. However, they can complement the other, if both recognizes and appreciates what the other contributes to the relationship and makes allowances for both.

Love Conquers All

If forced together as work colleagues or neighbors, Sagittarius and Virgo might drive each other nutty. At the very least, Sagittarius would find Virgo boring and predictable, while Virgo would think Sagittarius brash, uncouth, wild, and careless. It's only when the spark of love is lit that these two can begin to realize how much they have to offer each other.

What Makes the Relationship work?

The good news is that Virgo and Sagittarius are mutable signs and this makes them both flexible and adaptable people who are not afraid to change their minds. When in love these two will be willing to adapt, when necessary, to the other's style. As different as they are, both are intellectual in their approach to life and enjoy discussing life at length. This meeting of the minds is the underlying strength in this coupling, and the key to making it work is for Virgo to cool it with the nit-picking and criticism and for Sagittarius buckle to down a bit and keep their sense of humor.

As Lovers

Sagittarius brings sunshine and fun into Virgo's life and finds Virgo's practicality alluring. Both find their long-winded discussions stimulating. Neither plays the game of romance, and both are hesitant to commit. Virgo is fearful of making a mistake; Sagittarius doesn't want to be tied down. So it won't be love at first sight. However, when they do fall in love and commit, Virgo will feel safe in Sagittarius' arms, Sagittarius will have found a voice of reason, and their loving and fun sexual energy can smooth over their lifestyle differences.

As Spouses

As a married couple, regardless of gender, Virgo ensures the bills get paid on time, there's a roof over their heads, the house is clean, the kids get fed, and that they never run out of toilet paper. A Sagittarian will make sure Virgo takes time for fun and realizes that some events are beyond their control and all they can do is relax and enjoy the ride. When both do what they do best, theirs can be a stable, long-lasting marriage.


Although they have are entirely different parenting styles, together they make quite a team. A Sagittarian parent improvises, travels light, is flexible, has fun with their children and brings joy to their lives. A Virgo parent plans, sets limits or rules, and provides the children with a healthy, stable, and well-organized home. Working together they can raise healthy, happy, and well-balanced children who grow up knowing there's a time and a place for everything.

Biggest Issue

Money is the biggest issue Virgo/Sagittarius are likely to deal with. Virgos is a bit tight-fisted, likes to save and keep track of every penny. Sagittarius is an optimistic spendthrift. Virgo and Sagittarius can find common ground if they have an honest and heartfelt discussion about money. They'll need to know where they stand financially as a couple, then create a plan that allows Virgo to feel financially secure and Sagittarius to have a reasonable amount of mad money. When it comes to money, it can't be either/or, both will need to compromise.

Odd Couple

The oddest couples can make the cutest couples because once they are together for a while, they can laugh with each other about their foibles. However, it's always important to remember that what brings an odd couple together and holds them together is not their Sun signs, but something rooted in their astrological synastry or composite chart.
